The microfilm file of the Springfield, Greene County, Missouri, newspapers begins in 
1844. Many of the early newspapers had only a brief existence. There are gaps in the files. 

Almost all of the early newspapers have been indexed up through 1927. For many of the 
years there are abstracts as well. Each year has its own index and the index is to date of the 
newspaper item, so that a person with the index and access to the newspaper file could quickly 
locate the item for which he was searching. 

From 1940 to date actual clippings from the newspaper have been included as well as 
indexes. 

The Springfield—Greene County Library, P. O. Box 760, Springfield, MO 65801, has the 
old newspapers on microfilm and also has all the abstracts, clippings, and indexes as hard 
bound books. 

The library of the State Historical Society of Missouri, 1020 Lowry Street, Columbia, 
MO 65201 also has all the old newspapers on microfilm and also has most of the abstracts, 
clippings, and indexes—some in book form and some on microfilm. 

Other libraries which have most of the abstracts, clippings, and indexes (but not the full 
newspaper files) are the Family History Library, 35 N. West Temple Street, Salt Lake City, UT 
84150 and the DAR Library, Memorial Continental Hall, 1776 D. Street NW, Washington, DC 
20006-5392. 

The Ozarks Genealogical Society, P. O. Box 3494, Springfield, MO 65808 has many of 
the abstracts and indexes for sale. 



ERRORS AND OMISSIONS 

The newspaper made errors: John Dutton was really John Hutton. Names are 
misspelled. Dates are wrong. Many events—even deaths—were not mentioned in the paper. 

I made mistakes. Microfilm is often blurry and indistinct. Numbers particularly are 
difficult: 2s and 3s look alike; 6s and 8s look alike. Items were scattered about. Who would 
think of looking for a birth announcement among the want-ads? Items were overlooked 
because headline writers tend to be cutesy: "Prosecutor Jones Gets New Assistant" actually 
means his wife gave birth to a son. A marriage was reported under the headline: "To 
Consolidate." It is easy to overlook such whimsical items. 

Many items deliberately omitted often mention family relationships. Before radio and 
television the almost universally practiced recreation was visiting— usually relatives. There 
were thousands of items reporting such comings and goings: "Lucy Belle Smith returned to 
Ashtabula, Ohio, to visit her grandmother Violet Voles." Such items were not included in this 
index but nevertheless often reveal family relationships. The reader (if he has enough patience) 
might do well to read through such items. 

The reader is strongly urged to CHECK EVERYTHING. He should check the microfilm 
himself. He should check with other sources: birth and death certificates, tombstone records, 
probate records, funeral home records, city directories, census records. Fortunately the 
Springfield-Greene County Library has many of these records.

IN MKMOBY OF mat" 

In memory of our dear Hula lUay. 
who passed away one year ago today, 
January 3rd. 

Somewhere back of the sunset where 
loveliness never died, abe dwells In a 
land of glory with dreanip In her lifted 
tyom, and laughter Uvea all about her 
and music sways on the air. She la 
far from nil thouehts of sadness. The 
flowera of vanished April, the lout 
gold of summer's mirth are wrapped 
like a cloak about her who hurried 
loo soon from earth and we who have 
known her splendor, a beauty that 
brought 6wlft teara. will cherish her 
Vision alwuya to brighten I ha drlftlnif 
yeara. 

You who know us may think th^ 
u'ihiihI It healed, but today we mourn 
for heil and ran never forK**t the cheer 
she hiouicld to our home and we Ionic 

for a Kiln.; of Itrr sweet face once 

more. 

Badly mimed by her loved ones — 
Mr. and Airs. Oeo. Solomon. Harry 
and Harvey Smith, Oeo. H. Newberry 
and other relatives. 1A

Mrs. Frances Seyfarth 
1505 Grand View Drive 
Champaign, 111. 61820 

Dear Mrs. Seyfarth: 

I am presently involved in the geneological study of the 
history of my family. In the library of the New England 
Geneological Society, of which I am a member, I discovered 
your book Springfield 1880 . On page 25 of the book I found 
.some biographical material on my great grandfather Roswell K. 
Hart. I am currently trying to trace the geneology of his 
father, Henry Hart, married to Barbara Lambeth. I have a 
great volume of materials to work with here, but I need to 
know the county in which Roswell K. Hart was born (in North 
Carolina) or some further information on his father, who 
served in the War of 1812 and was also from North Carolina. 
In your book you list the date of birth of Roswell Hart as 
June 7, 1829. What was the source of this information? 

There is also a mention of clippings. Since our library 
does not have these clippings, where might I get photostats of 
them? I have not been able to get back any further than Henry 
Hart and any information you might be able to give to break 
this impasse would be most helpful. 

I will be visiting my last remaining uncle, Arthur Hart, 
in Springfield the 16th of this month. I hope to do more research 
there. 

Our library here is very extensive and I would be very happy 
to supply you with information if your own sources are incomplete 
at any point. 

Thank you very much for giving this your attention. 

Sincerely, 

Richard Hugh Hart \

* Ask'lfra. NubtAbd Price, 

County's oldest citizen, wbp has 

the same home since 1848. She has been 

a resident of Greene county for Op* ye a r n 

and remembers when land near the public 

Square sold for $1.26 an acre. 

She celebrated her 100th birthday Nov- 
ember 27 and hundreds of relatives and 
friends gathered from all sections of the 
Ozark region to join in the anniversary. 

Mrs. Price waa born in East Tennessee. 
She came to the Ocark region when a small 
gtrl and the family faced many hardships 
in making the trip in a covered wagon. Oxen 
were used Instead of horses. 
QHE was married December, 1848, to Terry 
Griffin Price. Her uncle, Brigg Simms, 
performed the ceremony. 

She traces her family tree back to the 
Revolutionary wlir. Her father, who died 
at the age of 116, fought in the Revolution- 
ary war, the war of 1812, Indian wars, the 




ALL of the stores and houaas in Spring- 
^ field at that time oomuated of tog cabin* 
and wild life. existed within a mile of^OH 
square. ' * 

The only hotel here at that time was a log 
cabin affair and was owned by Nick Smith. 
There was one dry goods store. Daniel 
Berry was the owner. A small grocery 
store, operated by Robert McElhaney, sup- 
plied the village and surrounding territory 
with provisions. 

The Price family made few trips to 
Springfield because of slow travel. In those 
days, it was a big task to shop in Spring- 
field, the trip requiring from daylight to 
dawn. Today, it is possible to leave the 
Price home northeast of Springfield in ant 
automobile and return home within an hour.

made hie way away from the city.

"I fired the first locomotive that

"Wrecks?" he said in answer to 
a question. "Tea. I waa In a pretty

All the others had lumped. But I

"Near Wood Und llill there were

! astute negro lawyer and lobbyist and 
Democratic politician won out. The 
highest court of the land had de- 
creed that the Cherokees must divide 
up their lands and money "fifty - 
flfty" with their ex-NegTO slave*. 
ICach received a quarter section of 
land, besides tin equal Interest with 
native born tribesmen In n " ,n * 
Inherited and Invested property and 
money of the cherokees. Twenty- 
five years luter the 1'herokee coun- 
try became ri sovcrlgn state of 
America. Incidentally all these

That waant ao ©ad. Bat there waa 
more to follow. It eUU remained 
for this Negro to marry a whiu 
woman, which created each a fur-

tical circles, and more especially In 



I the ranke of the Democratic party. 

'that Turner was pufcllcly snubbed 
and ostracised, although through 
his wealth and Influence among the 
Negro element of the party he waa 
carried on the pay roll of the Demo- 
cratic party speakers" bureau clear 
on up to the time of his death. 
Years and years afterward, when 
Chief Bushyhead had become en- 
febled with age and weary of his 
task as chief, he waa still unrelent-

one of the most persistent, ao.da.i-

Mr. Miller was SB years Old at the

Of Sensitive Nature 

"Claudle was of a very sensitive 
nature and any gossip or criticism 
hurt her deeply." one of her teach- 
ers said last night. She had come

and I thought her heart would 
break." ,

Forma Nearly similar 



Early Probate Records of 

Orcene County Date Back 

To 1833. 



The first will on record In Oreene 
i county was filed In probate court 
May 2, I860, and was that of Sarah 
Trrntbaui. Although the first to be 
found on the records, It waa not the 
first will filed. 

The first record of any probated 

wills was In 1833. but the names are 

not available as at that time the 

county court handled all probate 

! work and only the minute* were pre- 

• served. In 1847 the Oreene county 
' probate' court waa established. ' but 
| the court recoraa from 1847 to 1858 

Iare unaccounted foT. 
The. Trentham will waa admitted 
to probate May 8, 1886. and evidently 
; waa made ou a deathbed. The -ad- 
| dreaa of the testator was (flvrn onlv 

• aa Oreene county end the will was 
| accepted br 8. H Boyd, who signed 



The form of the wills entered at 
i that time and those entered at the 
| present time ore nearly similar. The 
: greatest difference la seen In the 
I spelling, an some of the spelling of 
! the early Inhabitant* of Oreene 
county does not conform with the 
I present' day stvle. .For Instance the 
old timers spelled "right" In several 
places "r!»e." and In sll Instance 
vised "betwlx" In place of "between" 
or "among." 

Who the Judges of the probnte 
court were between, 1847 and 1886 
cannot be ascertained, as all of ihe 
entries In the records were slmplv 
••Igned by the clerk with his title. 
The Jecsl phraseology of the early 
v. Ills was entirely disregarded, all be- 
•mt very brief srid to t,he point In

It la sad that one we cherished.

But the joya that do not perish 
Live In memory alone. 
Tnrough all pain at times, aha

A amlle of heavenly birth. 
And when the angelee called her 

home. 
She smiled farewell to earth. 
j Heaven ret&lneth now our treasure, j 
; Earth the lonely casket keeps. j 

How the sunbeams love to linger. j 
Where our saluted darling sleeps. 
When our time on earth is ended. 
And our day* shall be no more.

A. O. B;u lived tn On 
county for a long tlmo, being * na- 
tive. Ha want to Colorado and. en- 
tered tho cattla buetnose, and U now 
located at Sterling. In Bowell oounty. 

Mr. Byas weare hi» lone, black balr 
hanging unbraided down hla back. Ba 
alao wears a long beard wblcb 1* 
streaked with gray. 

Curloua peraona conceived the Idea, 
that ba bad perhaps let bla balr grow 
to win a bet. but tho cattla man 
•tatea that he let bla batr grow long 
tn conformity to the ecrtpturea. and 
he quoted various passages to sub- 
stantiate hla statement. He says ha 
docs not belong to any religious aect 
or cult which requires him to wear 
hla hatr and beard unshorn, but that 
he doea It because of hla own Inter- 
pretation of the scripture* 

Mr. Byas la unusually well Informed 
on the ecrtpturea and talka Interest- 
ingly on the Btblcal prophesies. Ha 
was In West Plains yesterday to at- 
tend court aa a party to a minor clrll 
suit. 

• • • 

Lone haired man are quite nn In 
the Otatrka now. Long balr waa worn 
for various reasons, one being an ad- 
vertisement that a wild man Is 
around. Wild Bill wore long balr and 
so did bla friend. Maj. Burke and 
other*. Ira 8. Haseltine, head of the 
large family that came down from 
Wlaconaln years ago and became prom- 
inent In Oreene county affair*, wore 
long hair, but waa not a wild man. He 
waa of large, powerful physique, and 
of striking appearance. He generally 
wore a "atove pipe" hat and liked to 
argue. He waa one of the lenders In 
the Oreenback party which had quite 
a following In the BOs. He wee nom- 
inated for congress when Oreene 
county waa In the old Slith dlatrlct 
and Jamea R. Waddill was the rep- 
resentative. James R. Waddill waa a 
Democrat, a brother of R. 8. Waddill 
and Oen. John B. Waddill who died 
a few yeara ago. Jamea R. Waddill 
waa renominated for congress by the 
Democrats but the Oreenbackers and 
Republicans formed a fusion and 
elected HiutelUr.e. who pronounced 



hl a name Haa-ll-tlne. tho I'a not be- 
ing aounded aa ea. NeverTneleea tor 
publlo preferred . to call him "Haxel- 
teene" and It goes at that. 

In the same way ' the nam* Wad; 
dill ta hopalesa with the masaaal 
There are three branches. Waddill, 
Weddell and Waddle, ail pronounced 
aa spelled but Jamea R. Waddill waa 
alwaya "Waddle" regardleaa of the 
spelling and the facts. 

Ira R. Haseltlne's long balr became 
something of a campaign laeua. Ha 
waa called a "long haired terrapin" 
and other names, auch aa were used 
In those times. Jamea R. Waddill 
never ran for congTsaa again but be- 
came Insurance commissioner of Mis- 
souri and waa a noted lawyer, locating 
in Kanaaa City for a number of yeara. 
He came to Springfield at one time 
to prosecute Charles T. Noland. who 
killed Sam Odell at College and Pat- 
ton alley. Noland and Odell fell out 
over a lawsuit and the evidence want 
to show that after the trial Odell 
struck Noland who shot In eelf -de- 
fence and he waa acquitted. 
• » • 

But long hair for men la the sub- 
ject. Ira 8. Haseltine spent two 
yeara In Washington ae a member of 
{ congress and never mlaaed a session. 

Butng * new member and of a minor- 
ity party ba waa given, no import*** 
rule tn tho bona*, tn tho next cam- 
paign the dlatrlct waa changed and 
Oreene county waa In the 14th dla- 
trlct. The RepubUcana nominated 
Col. W. T. Cloud, tba Democrata. 
Judge R. W. Fyan and the Oreen- 
backers Iru 8. Haseltine. whose two 
years In Washington didn't cause him 
to bob hla hair. The Republican* 
and Oreenbeckera dldnt fuse thla 
time and Haseltine waa defeated. Fy- 
an waa elected. 

Ira 8. Haaeltlne had much to do 
with 'bringing out appls crowing In 
Oreene county. He probably waa the 
first man In the county to erect 
buildings out of natural stone.

Stffl Trtunpled For- 
ests When Pint Dwelling 
Was Erected Hero— Ear- 
liest Church, Rudely Fash- 
ioned Bat Firmly Built, 
Was Constructed in 1842. 



When Indiana ware trampling the 
forests of southwest Missouri— back 
in 1830— the first; dwelling for white 
men on tbet territory whlah u now 
Springfield was erected; a few months 
later the first business structure was 
built: and further, before the town 
could bs termed even a "one-horse 
town"— ltt 1843. to be exact— the first 



church was constructed. 

Since then.' Springfield has grown 
to be a thriving city of «58,OO0 popu- 
lation and aome 1,300 business Insti- 
tutions. 

What are Springfield's oldest busi- 
ness structures now standing, either 
remodeled or as they stood, when first 
erected? 

This Is a question that only a few 
present residents of the city can an- 
swer In detail. It would be next to . 
impossible for a person to name the I 
single oldest business structure now | 
standing within the city limits, some j 
of the "old-tuners" cay. 

Ths writer, in gathering data on 
this bit of Springfield history, inter- 
viewed, a number of early Inhabitants 
bare, who. from their memory and 
written compllaOons In their posses- 
sion, were able to abed some light 
on the question, & ~ ■ 

The first dwelling was erected on 
what U now BoonrlUe avenue. It 
was located about six bJooka.Cron 
where the public square la. A. J. 
Burnett, brotbcr-tn-lsw of 'John F. 
Fulbrlght, both among the first set- 
tlers who cam* to this territory, has 
toe distinction of building the first 
cabin here. It was erected from 
hewed toys and was ty pical of pioneer 
construction. The log nut was oniyi 
13 by "18 feet. Settlers here et that 
time were John P. Campbell. William 
"Uncle Billy" Fulbrlght. who waft a 
brother of John Y.' Fulbrlght; Joseph 
Miller, brother-in-law of j. P. Caoip- 
beli; and Burnett. That seme year, 
1830, many other aettlcrs arrived. 
The First Merchant. 

Junius Campbell, brother of John 
F. Campbell, had the honor of being 
the flret merchant of the settlement, j 
Ilia business house, a rude log cabin,"! 
was located nenr the south end of the | 
present Frisco office building. 

And now the tide of immigration j 
flowed steadily. Dwellings and bust- j 
rtcsa houses were erecird, rind finally • 
In 1843. the first church v»es erecti'd. i 
It was a frame structure, rudely fash- j 
loned. but firmly built. The church ! 
was erected where the Hermann- ] 
Brownlow company. 401 South avenue, 
now etands. 

This building. Methodist In denom- j 
lnatlon. served the cl'.lzeni until \ 
1B38. T t wes then (!!.-::.•.•:•!•;.: ;.: ,'. u

Dr. Bhepard. 



T- 



: - 




Drury college probably tau the 
sbetlnctsen of baring mora Uietone 
features fM ' lu campus than any 
' other coJIege In this section of the 
| country, according to dit * complied 
I by Or. M. M. stoeperd. former profes- 
jeor of gcolorr at the college. 

The eempflr has trace* of the old 
St. Loui* road. rifle ptu. a •ton* 
monument and pre-historic mo un d*. 

The old Ct. Louie road ran across 
the northeast corner of ths campus 
diagonally to the southwest earner. 

During *h* Civil war. tha Federal 
troops were In poeses* ton of Bprlng- 
fleld and constructed earthwork* on 
both aides of tbs road where It ran 
across the campus. These earth- 
work*, or rifle pit*, are now covered 
with sod and stand practically a* 
high as when first made. 

Several forte were established in 
flprtngfteld at that time. One we* 
on tb* old at. Louis road whlnb ran 
close to where the Kentwood Arms 
hotel 1* now looated. Another was 
above the present rook quarry on 
College street. 

After the Battle of Wilson Oreek. 
Oenarei Price moved to Springfield 
and camped a little to the west of 
where the FrUoo station now stands. 
Ths Federal soldiers had retreated to 
Rolls but soon came back towards 
Springfield. 

General Fremont detached a com- 
pany of cavalry under Zagonyl. who 
detoured thro mrh the hill* to the 
north of Springs laid In order to avoid 
rifle pita on Drury eampue and tb* 
fort on the 8t. Lout* road. He sur- 
prised Prioe'a men and completely 
| routed them. 
j atone Monument on Campus. 

The Stone monument was placed 
, on Drury oempus about IMA by the 
United States Oeodotfc Survey They 
determined the latitude aa 97 de- 
gree*. 19 minute* and l»*e second* 
and the longitude ae 09 degrees 17 
minutes and 17.M seconds. The 
monument was erected a little north- 
east of Fairbanks hall aa the point of 
observation. 

There are eevaral prehistoric 
mound* on the campus, according to 
Dr. Bhepard. and moat of them are 
In fairly good shape, although one, 
has been graded over and obliterated 

When this reglou was first visited 
by the white man. the Oeage Indiana 
were in occupation. Before them 
came prehistoric races, namely the 
Mound Builders Representing 

these are groups • low mounds »cat- 
lered throughout the Ozark*. These 



moundti lire sometimes so low as to 
be hardly noticeable, and they are 
rarely elevated more than two or 

there* feet above tha »urroun«lUng 
oountry. Tbey often are twenty or 
thirty feet to diameter, ueuall? aa> 
ranged In Irregular group*, number- 
ing from ball • down to fifty or 
al«ty. atnd standing from 100 to ISO 
feet apart. 
Tbey are rarely more than a qudr- 

tar of a mil* away groan water, betag 
mostly located In Irregular group*, 
or rows In the narrow veJIeya sloping 
i toward springs ' or water coursee. 
I Tbey are seldom found In ths broad - 
i etr. lower valley*, either because of 
' the fear of overflow or for the reason 
[that more dense forest* covered tne 
. river bottoms than now prevail. 
1 Mounds Often Cnrerugnlzed. 

Ths original slifeiit cltr.a'.lon cf 
those mounds has cauaed then, to be 
' often unrecognised, and the farmer 
. by plowing and harrowing, his de- 
I mollabed many of them or greatly 
1 reduced their slee. They are fre- 
quently marked. In a fleid of gram, 
aa little Islands of more luxurious 
, growth. 

These mound* are. without doubt. 
I the remain* of human habitation*. 
— the villages of the Mound Build- 
ers, which appear to have been com- 
! posed of circular adobe huu. struc- 
ture* made of mud walls or sun- 
dried brick*, with thatched roc!* 
like those of the Mandar. !::«'.:*ns Ce- 
sser I bed by Lewis snd Clark. When 
the adobes were sbandoued. the de- 
' cay of tha thatched roof and the ac- 
tion of the element* aoon r e du ced 
them to the condition of low 
mounds, aa they appear today. A 
section of the mounde abowa a line 
of mould at about the level of the 
ground. Indication* of the floor of 
the dwelling, with remains of char- 
coal often marking the position of 
the fire-place In the hut which ap- 
pears to have alwaya been .round in 
shape. 

The absence of bones, or any 
human remains, shows that ifcej 
were not burial mounds. The »<;:.- 
dried adobe of which they were f,:cr>- 
ably made la further evidenced by 
ths absence of atones or cosrser ma- 
terial tn them. The

A. V. O. HuUU, veteran bridge in-

subject of * story In tb* March 
of Tbe rYiseo empsoye*' 
j Mr. Raskin bu had fifty-one T»«" 
service, during which tUne be hat 
never had a vacation. 
The story follow*: 
Prom psoitis schooner* to tuwmo- 
bllee— end from locomotives with bell- 
j shaped stacks to 1500 oilbumere. is 
tbe railroad experience of A. V. O. 
Haeklll. bridge Inspector for tbe Frisco 
Line* at Springfield. Mo 

HI* card pas* reads "Fifty-one 
, year*' *ervlce" and he ha* never. In 
: that entire period, had a vacation. "1 
!atarted aeveral time*." be *ald. "but 
something came up and I never got 
one." He ha* traveled mainly over 
Frisco rail* — and a short talk with 
him of bit service and many ex- 
perience* (which to him aeem com- 
monplace enough) would Interest the 
moat Indifferent listener. 

He claim* Lewlaton Junction Maine, 
as bis birthplace, and March 13. 1667. 
as the date of his birth. At the age 
of sixteen, he landed In St. Louis 
"looking for a Job." At tbat Urns, in 
1878. the United state* was In tbe 
clutches of the greatest money panic 
It ever endured. He was fortunate In 
securing work with the Missouri Pa- 
cific Railroad In tbe water servloe de- 
partment. He came to the bridge de- 



. <S W. Turner, later appointed super- 

I' intendent of bridge*, and bas been 
In bridge and construction work dux- , 
Ins; bl* entire nmrolr* 

As one of tbe few man yet In aerv- 
ice who helped build tha greet line*' 
of the Frisco System, he tea* inter- 
estingly of bis experience* when be 
worked In a construction gang, build- ' 
lag the line from Pelxce City to Wlcb- ' 
lta In 1870: of driving piling from . 
Plymouth Junction (now Monett. 
Mo.) to Van Buren. Arkansas. In 1883: ! 
of hi* part In laying track from Pa- 
cific to St. Louis, which work was 
done under tbe charter of the old At- 
lantic A Pacific. It was called tbe 
southweat branch of the Mlnourl Pa- 
cific and that road operated It. He 
also drove piling between Springfield 
and Bolivar before the grade we* 
built. Tew men. IX any, have been eo 
closely associated with the . building 
program of tbe Frisco Lines and Its 
early construction days, as he. 

Most of bis servloe bas been In and 
around the eaatern division. At one 
time he worked In the bridge and 
building shops, but since 1903 be has 
been working out of Springfield as an 



| Inspector of bridges. 

Tbe growth of many of tbe cities ' 
along Frisco Line* is a source of In- 
terest to him. "Take Tulsa for In- \ 
stance." he aald. "When we were 
constructing the line In Oklahoma. I 
shot prairie chickens on the site 
where Tulsa now stands. The Ftl«co 
railroad certainly helped to build 
those town*. 

"We saw many Indians during our ' 
time In Oklahoma, and we thought ! 
nothing of prairie schooners going j 
across the plains, filled with 'home- ] 
eteaders'. We were stationed at Wy- j 
enuotte, Oklahoma, for a long period 
of time, and while there we attended ] 

1 a r**'~ ***** on sjnntlT. under tbe dl- 
'rectlon of an old Quaker. 

"The equipment In thoae days wa* 
I ! of antique type. The coaches were 
j made of wood, the equipment had 
| hand brake*, and tbe engine had' a 
brajte on the tender. When the. en- 
gineer would whistle for n s tatio n. 

the hrakernan. conductor and flreeosn 
would eet tbe brake*) on tbe trata. 
Tbose war* the day* of tss* ltek and j 
I pin coupler and oil bsoffilrfliia I iw> j 
[ me n -bar on* conductor we used to 
have by tbe nam* of Drrden. He was 
j six feet, six inch** tail. H* couldn't , 
latralgbten up In the caboose, except 
when he would stand In tbe *m!ddl* 
Ojf tbe car under tbe ve-atilstor 

•'When are ware an lb* boe. wo : 
slept In tents, 'and carried our coot- 
lag car along with us, however. When 
pay day came. Mr. Wanawlf-h. who ' 
uaed to be paymaster, would go ever 
the division in a pay car and pay U-e 
men in cash." . 

In comparing* aorn* of tbe atael rail 
laid now and In former days. Mr. Has- 
kell said: "Tbe first steel ever laid on 
this railroad was called English chair 
Iron and the ralla were twenty-four 
feet long, and weighed about fifty- 
seven pounds. Comparing that with 
the 110-pound rati of today. It cer- 
tainly was small, but In proportion to 
the equipment which passed cnti I: 
Train* did not make more than thirt- 
mllee an hour, and all the coecbe* 
were heated with stove*. 

"I remember the first automobile I 
ever saw- It was near Meramec Hl^fc- 
landa. Missouri. I had occasion to go 
to -the city hall with a party and

{Of tha early Bprtx^lUld would b« Of 
i interest to some of your rmdcra. My 
first trip to Springfield vu w*<ie m. 
the fall of 1*45. | ww about 7 y«us 
old. The trip wu rnad» <rrju BteoHb- 
fitld to Springfield in ut cut vug ox. 
dr»wn by a pair of long homed oxen. 
My father, mother, a youngur broth- 
er, and myself visited John Mc- 
cracken's nome three mllea north- 
east of Springfield We drove with 
the ox team from near M a r s h field 
to McCracken'a in one day. auld to be 
35 miles. McCrscken's wife and 
mother were own cousins.. One thing 
| I remember well was a man they 
■ called Peter Kperaon. Prom that 
time on until 1850 I vuited Sprlng- 
! field frequently. In the meantime » 
j became acquainted with several men 
! that you probably have known. 
I among them was Sam Fulbrlght. two 
men by the name of Joe and Rip 
I Wruvrr. John S Pliel|i.s. John S WkU- 
: dill. Dr Wooten. Dr. Shackelford, and 
'John Lair, u blsrkfunlth. his rhop 
'stood on Springfield and St Louis 
• tree'.' Mr ran several for«e.s Dr 
Shackelford then lived about one ar.d 
; one-half miles eiiM of the square. 

"My father followed selling horses | 

' from !HtH In 1M0<I A hired liand and 

■myself .could tuke four horses a day 

to 8|irlr.k,'fleld to /-hoe them Jjilr 

rnii.ic Hi- M>oes m.d nulls by hand. 

There ™ no hiich thing as hur^e- 

: shoes then. We '.would take four 

I horses there and back In a day.

Ban Oannafux killed Judge Linclen- 
bower. It was whispered, they were 
going to try to lynch Oannefax. but 
better minds prevailed. My memory 
Is not good on some thlngu. but I 
think Cannefsjc killed Llndenbower In 
H»«7. 

"I was well acquainted with Major 
Berry and his son. Dorsey. I think 
Dorsey was a little bit Older than I 
am. he died a few years back in 
Springfield. Mafjor Berry was said to 
be the richest man In Springfield at 
my earliest reccllectlon He lived j 
then, if i , im -, ot mistaken, in a | 
double log hou/e near what is called 
the Horry «pnn h

where we lived. . They got a wagon j 
load of goods from St. Louis about I 
once a month. 

"Oame was so plentiful in this 



country at that time. deer, turkey, 
und some bear, that Mr. Weaver and 
John Hancock, and several others 
u»ed to come out to our bouse in 

the fall and hunt." 

Mr. King la wrong In his state- j 
ment that Waaham was innocent. A ; 
story went the rounds that Waaham '» I 
wife confessed on her death bed thnt ' 
she had framed up on Washrim a';£

uhu wrote i he early history of Oreer.e '
